Another big boost this month. My employer deposited their annual contributions into my HSA and pension plus we're still saving a lot. But I'll be getting the second dose of the covid vaccine this month so I'll be headed back to in-person work more often next month. That means the kids will have to go back to daycare so we won't be able to save as much. But I still might graduate out of this thread by the end of the year, depending on how the markets behave, which is way sooner than I expected! And it's very nice to see progress like the fact that my monthly gain for January was almost half of my annual gain in 2019!

Debt went up because we refinanced our house and my husband bought (0% for 15 months on credit card) a gravel bike.

2019
January $87k
February $95k
March $95k
April $98
May $95
June $104
July $106
August $115
September $118
October $134
November $136
December $143

2020
January $153 (Got back on YNAB after a few years off - this, along with market tailwinds made 2020 an amazing year)
February $159
March $152 (Market crash and start of recovery)
April $172
May $187
June $187 (Bought a 2012 Toyota Sienna for $8,200)
July $202
August $206
September $207
October $215
November $233
December $234

2021
January $241

February $246

Was hoping to hit $250k by the end of January (and hit it for a day!), but took a small hit in the market right as the month closed out, as well as the Zestimate on my rental properties dropping a couple thousand.

Still, making progress and chugging along. Will likely cross $250 by the end of this month as paychecks and tax refund roll in. I have a ~$6k engine rebuild on my Jeep coming in April, but hope to have enough clearance to stay above $250k by that time.

Almost there!!

I’m jumping in this thread with a few ideas and thoughts in mind. I don’t plan to add house equity or extras like that. I’m not even going to add the spouse’s 401k. I’ll be solely tracking
My 401k and my Roth IRA Numbers to go toward the goal of $250k. I may add the savings account numbers later, but most of that pays toward the last of my mortgage and a basement remodel right now.

My stats:

Jul2019 — $101953
Aug2019 — $106277
Sep2019 — $111050
Oct2019 — $114791
Nov2019 — $120215
Dec2019 — $122692
Jan2020 — $120521
Feb2020 — $123625
Mar2020 — $124248
Apr2020 — $133240
May2020 — $145475
Jun2020 — $143581
Jul2020 — $151652
Aug2020 — $155546
Sep2020 — $149687
Oct2020 — $161159
Nov2020 — $182840
Dec2020 — $197090
Jan2021 — $197402


Numbers updated thru the last day of the month. 
January was doing well for me.  And then last week of Jan happened, and I took a hit which dropped me back to pretty much the same total from the end of December.  Luckily there was a great bounce back on the first week of February, but I’m not counting that chicken until it hatches from the egg.

My unofficial goal is to pop up to $250k by the end of DEC 2021. It’s going to take some good gains and avoiding any larger drops.  I’m excited to see how 2021 goes.  The “meet my goal of 6% gains for the year” puts me at needing a total of around $230k.  Obviously I’m trying to pump that number up a little.  I’ll be happy to reach that goal, but very happy to reach the $250k.

Good luck to all

wow, I haven't updated here in ages! Here's the past 6 months:

Sep 20 120,976
Oct 20 121,341
Nov 20 123,130
Dec 20 129,299
Jan 21 131,476
Feb 21 132,776

I'm not setting any specific goals for myself this year. I'm looking to buy a new house but the market is absolutely nuts right now. So I'm just stashing away my savings... not doing much investing.

August 2020 - 101.700
Sept 2020    - 109.200 (+7,4%)
Oct 2020      - 111.200 (+1,8%)
Nov 2020     - 118.900 (+6,9%)
Dec 2020     - 124.300 (+4,5%)
Jan 2021      - 130.900 (+5,3%)
Feb 2021      - 134.300 (+2,6%)

Progress will go slower coming year. I'm only tracking investments and we're currently saving for our down payment and are lowering monthly investments.

115.328 €
+ 5.275 €

Another crazy month! Markets and especially Cryptos are way up.
I moved money from the "to-be-invested" bucked into stock-picks and crypto. I also increased my ER fund (for emergencies and remodeling) from money my bank owed me. It's not part of my assets.

I added some projection to the table, base on 5% interest and constant savings.

Doing March update a little early as I got the weekend. Disappointing gain as I barely spent anything last month, but I got to remember my February update was done in mid February when markets were at a high... they've since subsided.

I moved the day of updating the numbers to the last day of the month (instead of the 15th). Otherwise calculating the saveing rate would get confusing, if I save additional money after the 15th but before the 1st...

Unfortunately, the new stats are lower than those two weeks ago. But still, a good month with a 60.1% savings rate :).

Annual Gain$4,734.95$27,930.17$27,778.45$28,971.56$53,924.98

I got a $4.6K tax refund as a result of several different factors: I maxed my 401(k), which got my AGI below the threshold to get the rest of my $1,200.00 stimulus check, and purchased a new home which resulted in a lot of tax savings. I ended up putting the tax refund into my kitchen, and got a light reno completed including updated electrical/plumbing, installing a dishwasher (have not had one in years, will greatly increase value of unit when I move and rent it out), and reconfiguring the space to add a ton of counter and cabinet space. The progress is in my journal if anyone wants to see photos and eventual cost breakdowns.

I may not make my Q1 2021 goal since I am in between jobs and do not get paid until 4/1 (paid monthly, and my start date is 3/1). However, I hope that with my new job, I will be able to progress through this thread much faster than is anticipated below. Fingers crossed!

Goals Breakdown
Q4 2020: $130k Reached 12/30!
Q1 2021: $145k
Q2 2021: $160k
Q3 2021: $175k
Q4 2021: $200k
Q1 2022: $215k
Q2 2022: $230k
Q3 2022: $250k.



Projected Graduation date: December 2022

Prior Progress: Race from 10 to 100k!

3/19: $83,762.93
8/19: $101,572.33 (graduated to this thread)
3/20: $118,287.76 (-6,129.86, -4.93%)
4/20: $109,838.67 (-8,449.09, -7.14%)
5/20: $124,495.18 (+14,656.51, +13.34%)

3/21: $206,593.43 (+10,302.76, +5.25%)

Pretty light spending this month and normal savings/investments. Happy to have broken the $200k barrier!

Note: all numbers are from the 1st of the month. Only tracking investments, no savings, assets, etc.

Jan 2020: $100,566
Jan 2021: $215,994
Feb 2021: $228,464 (+12,470) [+5.77%]
Mar 2021: $241,785 (+13,321) [+5.83%]

Year-to-date change: (+$25,791) [+11.94%]

February turned out to be a great month for me financially. The biggest news is a significant raise to both my salary and my commission bonus. Beyond that, I'm also being offered more stock options in the company - the eventual sale of which is a big part of my FIRE timeline. This boost to my 2021 income means I should have a very easy time hitting both my savings goals for the year and my family's stretch goals. I am in an extremely lucky position and I don't take it for granted.

For the first two weeks of February, I thought I would break $250k, but the second two weeks weren't nearly as kind and I more or less stalled out. I don't think a major market correction is coming, so I'm pretty sure I'll Graduate in March or April. Graduating a full quarter early is a pretty exciting prospect! Regardless of that, I'm going to keep on keeping on. The market goes up and down month-over-month and day-over-day, but overall I expect the recovery to grow stronger as the stimulus passes the Senate and more vaccines go out. In the end, I am in an extremely good position for whatever the future brings.

Crazy how close I am to 250K.  Clearly there are many ups & downs to come: can't expect this run to last.  But in addition to the market flutters, I have been making large contributions, and those I get to keep : )

I’m jumping in this thread with a few ideas and thoughts in mind. I don’t plan to add house equity or extras like that. I’m not even going to add the spouse’s 401k. I’ll be solely tracking
My 401k and my Roth IRA Numbers to go toward the goal of $250k. I may add the savings account numbers later, but most of that pays toward the last of my mortgage and a basement remodel right now.

My stats:

Jul2019 — $101953
Aug2019 — $106277
Sep2019 — $111050
Oct2019 — $114791
Nov2019 — $120215
Dec2019 — $122692
Jan2020 — $120521
Feb2020 — $123625
Mar2020 — $124248
Apr2020 — $133240
May2020 — $145475
Jun2020 — $143581
Jul2020 — $151652
Aug2020 — $155546
Sep2020 — $149687
Oct2020 — $161159
Nov2020 — $182840
Dec2020 — $197090
Jan2021 — $197402
Feb2021 — $218863


Numbers updated thru the last day of the month. 
February turned out pretty good. I’d love to pull similar numbers in March, but I am sticking to my strategy and my exposure to the S Funds are going to be limited for most of the month.  I am considering to update that information and switch the S Fund around 12 March in anticipation of the next stimulus Bill being passed.


My unofficial goal is to pop up to $250k by the end of DEC 2021. It’s going to take some good gains and avoiding any larger drops.  I’m excited to see how 2021 goes.  The “meet my goal of 6% gains for the year” puts me at needing a total of around $230k.  Obviously I’m trying to pump that number up a little.  I’ll be happy to reach that goal, but very happy to reach the $250k.

Good luck to all

@Cezil - that is neat to see laid out
What would 2016 you say if they heard 2021 you had $168k?

Just Graduated from the previous thread and ready to keep the running going.  Only tracking Savings and Investments.  Have a feeling growth is going to be a bit slower after this update with the expense of moving and prepping our previous home for sale.  Hopefully, that goes through smoothly so we can make up for lowering the rate of savings while we get stabilized and situtated.

It's my last week at work before maternity leave so I'm late with my update and haven't got all my info. Looks like there were some market dips so no huge progress.

I'll still give it until the end of the month.

I'm in a similar position. I hit $250k last week, but I'm sort of holding my breath through the end of March! LOL

This is quite remarkable! The sort of movement seen by people with 2-3 times the amount (compounding on a bigger pile).

Well done!
